Kentuckians to sign books
HUNTINGTON - Folk artist Minnie Adkins of Elliott County and storyteller/songwriter Mike Norris of Lexington will sign copies of their children’s books titled “Bright Blue Rooster” and “Sonny the Monkey” at the Huntington Museum of Art’s Museum Shop at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Both books are illustrated with photographs of wood carvings. A selection of carvings used in the books will be on display. Refreshments will be served.
Readers have the choice of reading the story or singing it, as sheet music is included and a CD recording is included in the collector’s edition of both books, which will be available at the museum shop.
In addition to the bookstore versions, collector’s editions of “Sonny the Monkey” and “Bright Blue Rooster” also are available. Each collector’s edition is signed and numbered and each book contains an original drawing by Adkins, as well as the accompanying CD, affixed to the inside back cover. The CDs contain an original song complementing the story, a narration of the story and an interview with Adkins.
